Those selected areas have been identified by the Malagasy National Plan as strategic regions for fisheries, and potential fisheries growth poles. Of them three regions where fisheries management plans have been developed or are under finalization are considered priority, namely : Ambaro bay and Ampasidava in the Diana and Sofia regions; Antongil bay in the Sava and Analanjirofo regions and Maintirano area in Melaky region. The two other areas, in the Androy and Atsimo-Atsinanana regions, are characterized by fisheries development potential and the weak presence of the administration as well as the food shortage challenge in the Androy region.
